Exuding tranquility, this private Modern Zen Design House in Tokyo is envisioned because the perfect place to discover inner peace. Balance is one of several hardest things to succeed in and because, our struggle and efforts are steady and focused in that direction, a wonderfully balanced home helps us to realize happiness. Where we spend most of our free time has a pretty good impact upon our lives. RCK Design completed the trendy Zen Design House project, with this in mind: to be able to have a blissful life, we’d like a neat and serene home environment. Despite being small (spreading over 120 square feet) it can be smartly built. It integrates simplistic volumes and white walls, exhaling openness and a zen-like atmosphere.
The house was built as a temple for the body, mind and soul. “The house uses special windows to avoid outsiders to view the inner of the home, but still allows abundant natural lighting to go into. Both in its simple square shape and clean, exterior in grey and funky white gives this Zen style house. There are anchors and twine for green wall round the entrance. Organic plants prevent heat from sun lights in Summer and its photosynthesis produces oxygen all of the year.” The tiny but functional home is characterised by low furniture, simple straight lines and quiet earthy colours, enhancing the sensation of tranquility.
